Sterculia coccinea plant extract used to assess its different biological activity. Extract was made by soaking the dried plant powder in methanol. After comparing with the standard we found that Methanol extract of the sample gave the activity against all the experimented microbes of ZI (zone of inhibition) against E. coli and B. subtillis. After performing the antioxidant, thrombolytic, antidiarrheal, hypoglycemic and cytotoxic activity assay of methanol extract of sample plant we saw that it has a good biological activity that can be used as a potential traditional medicine.
